Tick Data

QuantQuote historical tick data packages provide the most complete view of stock market activity.

QuantQuote TickView historical intraday stock data (available from January 1998 through the present) provides the complete trading history for all NASDAQ and NYSE listed stocks. TickView contains every single quote and trade reported by all market centres consolidated into a single dataset. The database is research ready and contains split and dividend adjustments, and accounts for symbol changes and survivorship bias via QuantQuote's TickMAP framework.

TickView files can be delivered in compressed binaries created by our QuantEDGE software. This innovative software allows our tick datasets to take up 92% less space versus traditional data storage methods. QuantEDGE software libraries written in cross-platform C++ allow for easy and efficient data retrieval from disk. Tick data is also available in CSV format.

A full data description and specifications can be found in our TickView whitepapers on the right.

All QuantQuote tick resolution intraday stock data come in the QuantEDGE advanced compression format. C++ QuantEDGE libraries perform on-the-fly decompression in memory and automatic data loading in a single step for unparalleled performance and ease of use. QuantEDGE is also fully integrated and compatible with TickMAP.

QuantEDGE allows for a 92% reduction in data file size, greatly reducing storage requirements. The binary format combined with decompression in memory actually makes the loading of QuantEDGE format data faster than loading uncompressed text data despite the added processing time from decompression. The libraries are platform independent and can be run on most Unix/Linux/OSX systems. QuantEDGE has also been used successfully on Windows 1.

A standalone QuantEDGE application is also available to automatically decompress tick resolution data files. For a full description of QuantEDGE and its capabilities, please see our QuantEDGE Whitepaper

1 Windows usage is not fully supported, but QuantEDGE has been successfully deployed on Windows by many customers.
